Homemade 10 Minute Natural Deodorant 


I'm sure by now, we have all heard of the dangers of store bought deodorants. Filled with chemicals and Mercury, applied to a freshly shaven under arm, it is one of the more dangerous compounds we come in contact with on a daily basis. Studies have shown, that most breast cancer tumors contain this toxic chemical mixture, which is a reason enough to put it down for good. Possibly, some of you haven't made the switch to natural deodorant yet, because making your own seems complicated. It's not! Maybe you think it won't work as well? My own opinion: It works WAY better.

Here is the simple recipe that I use.

1/4 cup baking soda

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/2 coconut oil

Optional: few drops of essential oil of your preference

Whip together ingredients until thoroughly blended.

(I use a hand mixer)

Texture should be creamy. If yours is not, add a bit more coconut oil until it is.

Store in a small container with a lid.

This literally took me less than 10 minutes. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
